I've been a hand stitcher for at least 25 years, but I've never found a comfortable and functional thimble that works for me. Thimbles either get in my way or fall off. I've lost track of the number of thimbles I've hurled across the room!
Consequently, I have a hole in my finger. It comes and goes, depending on how long I stitch before it hurts too much and I, reluctantly, give my skin time to heal.
That was before I was given a Clover adjustable thimble to try. It was love at first stitch. Having hand quilted for more than a dozen hours since Monday, I can happily say that my new thimble is now my constant companion. Thanks to my friend Sarah, the hole in my finger will be no more!
